Lesley Robinson writes, “I need everything from pj’s to blankets to toiletries to books to socks & stuffed animals. I also need volunteers to ribbon pjs and blankets, bag toiletries, and pack the Comfort Cases. Drivers are always needed to take the Cases to the agencies who distribute them. I also need quart and gallon-sized ziplock bags.
